Michigan “Boogaloo Boi” with brutal past accused of lying about using drugs while buying guns

PLYMOUTH, Mich. – A member of the Michigan-based “Boogaloo Bois” who has a history of domestic violence has been charged with lying about using drugs when purchasing a gun.

Timothy Allen Teagan, 22, has filed a criminal complaint accusing him of using drugs, possessing guns and ammunition, and making false statements when purchasing a firearm.

The complaint comes after Teagan attacked his father in late October. FBI agents received a warrant to his father’s home on Cherry Street, Plymouth, where they found drug supplies, weapons, and Boogaloo merchandise.

Officials say they believe Teagan lied on ATF Form 44723 about using drugs to obtain weapons.

The father’s assault leads to his arrest

On October 25, Plymouth Police Department arrested Teagan for domestic violence.

Police said he bit his father in the forehead and hit him multiple times. According to his father, Teagan lived in a hotel, but kept his things in a residence on Cherry Street.

Teagan was arrested on October 25 and released on bail the following day. His brother bought him clothes and a “ton of weed” when he was released, according to the complaint.

Teagan’s criminal history

According to officials, Teagan has had a history of domestic assault and violence against his father and brother since 2014.

His first arrest for assault was reported in 2014 when he was a child.

Teagan was later arrested by Plymouth Police in the summer of 2017 when he bit his father on the shoulder, broke his skin and put a sword to his father’s throat, threatening him.

According to officials, Teagan attacked his brother on the same day, chasing him with his sword and firing an airsoft gun. He also stabbed many holes in the family refrigerator with his sword.

Following his arrest, Teagan pleaded guilty but all charges were dropped.

A few years later, on March 12, 2022, police said they were called after Teagan hit his friend three times in the head and kicked his wife in the face after a political altercation. Officials say Teagan has threatened to shoot his friend’s house with an AR-15 if they call the police. The applicants refused to press charges, so Teagan was not arrested.

The lie about using drugs to buy guns

On July 17, Timothy signed ATF 44723 for the purchase of the Glock 34 9mm pistol. Officials say Teagan denied being a drug addict when responding to the form.

Officials say Teagan signed the form knowing that a penalty could be imposed if the information contained was false. Below is question 21.E in the form. Teagan replied “no” and after signing the form, he bought the gun on July 20.

“Are you an illegal user or addicted to marijuana or any other depressive, stimulant, intoxicant or any other controlled substance? Warning: Using or possessing marijuana remains unlawful under federal law, regardless of whether it has been legalized or decriminalized for medicinal or recreational purposes in the state where you live. “

The following are items that were confiscated at home:

  • AR-15 rifle (Diamondback Arms, Inc. DB15 semi-automatic rifle caliber .556) from bed

  • Dozens of rounds for both rifle and 9mm ammunition

  • Lots of AR and 9 mm magazines

  • ACOG rifle sight and rifle front grip

  • Lots of containers with suspected marijuana

  • A large bong

  • Dozens of smaller bongs along with other drug related accessories

  • A grinder that was often used to grind whole marijuana leaves

According to his father, most of these items were found in the room containing Teagan’s belongings. Agents also say they saw a plate vest, a Tier IV bulletproof vest, gas masks, and Boogaloo flags and patches among the seized items.

A Glock 34 9mm pistol was also seized from Brother Teagan’s vehicle.

Father told officials that he had asked Teagan to remove the firearms from his home, but his son refused. The father did not have access to the gun because it was locked in a safe, but both his sons had keys.

On October 27, Teagan told FBI agents that he was smoking marijuana and was trying to cut it down. He also told agents that on October 26, his brother had bought him pot but had not consumed it.

What is the Boogaloo movement?

The term “Boogaloo” has been around since the beginning of 2010. According to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the ideology behind the Boogaloo movement is that the Second US Civil War is coming or, as some members call it, the Second American Revolution. Members of this movement support anti-government and anti-government rhetoric.

Like other anti-government groups, Boogaloo members have “looks”. They usually place igloos and Hawaiian shirts on their flags and clothing and call themselves “Boogaloo Bois.”

CSIS says Boogaloo supporters frequently carry firearms during protests and rallies. Officials say one of Wolverine Watchmen’s founders, Joseph Morrison, used the pseudonym “Boogaloo Bunyan.” Morrison was accused of linking the 2020 anti-government plot to the kidnapping of Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
